Two weeks in Argentina!

I brought this backpack with me to Miami and Argentina for two weeks and it held up perfectly. It's amazing how much you can actually fit in the bag. The organization pockets are strategically placed. My only feedback is that the side pocket does not stretch enough to fit a water bottle. It barely would expand but that is the only thing I would change.

My husband loves it

What is not to love? Adjustable harness for shorter/longer torso, the wide hip straps with pockets (I wish my Osprey Fairpoint had this), plenty of storage room for clothes, laptop, etc.

My only recommendation would be to make a female version. That's the only reason I didn't get one fir myself--I couldn't get comfortable with the shoulder straps-- women with larger than a B cup will not appreciate the pectoral rubbing.

Great Backpack!

My Tortuga Outbreaker Backpack, is mostly used as a "go bag" or day backpack. I take it with me in case of emergency for a change of clothes, or a quick trip. I really like the lap belt as it takes the weight off of my shoulders. I have lower back and shoulder issues where I carry most of my pain. So the Outbreaker has been wonderful in making sure I don't add more weight to those areas of my body than I need to.

The World's Pack

Love this pack. I've taken it on a few short trips so far and it has been nothing short of incredible. Pocket space is more than sufficient. Plenty of room. Organized well. About to take this thing down to South America for a year - I have no doubt my affection will grow even greater for this bag.
